Maryland’s next comptroller on her goals and why tracking dollars matters to taxpayers

December 21, 2022

When state Del. Brooke Lierman was running for the job of Maryland comptroller, she visited every county and Baltimore City; the first thing she had to do was explain to voters what a comptroller does. “In a nutshell, it sees every dollar in and every dollar out,” Lierman said. The comptroller is also responsible for collecting all the taxes, working on the returns, working on the auditing “to make sure that people are paying their fair share,” she said. The comptroller, along with the governor and treasurer, also sits on the three-member Board of Public Works, which she said, “is responsible for approving or denying every single contract that the state enters into over $200,000.”
